escape | oblivion | sleep

seeking escape
oblivion

sleep
          where I cannot weep

where pain scurries off
melting into a night so deep

escape
oblivion

sleep

if she asks
                   do tell her

      it was having lost her

              that led me down the path

                           to finding myself

at last

when quivering lips meet

&

tongues

& whispers soothe each sigh

the ache of two vagabond souls yearning to share a few moments,

to share, to feel again,
memories and pain intermingled

seeking a peace so elusive to find …

‘it’s then
I must still my thundering heart, my love

&
close my eyes,

just hoping against reason,
that when I awake

you shall still be lying here beside me

and that you shall still
be mine

when soft hues meet

waltzing
quivering tongues
& whispers entwine

your hair across my chest

… so shhh my love, my life,
say barely a word

just lie here
& be mine
